Many of us rely on western medicine as a quick fix for almost any condition, yet we often don't think about the potential side effects these toxic drugs can potentially have on our bodies.
As one of Australia's most respected and prolific naturopaths, Mim Beim believes in using natural remedies instead of pharmaceutical medicine wherever possible, and says that many natural alternatives are literally available in our backyards! In her new book, Natural Remedies: An A-Z of cures for health and wellbeing (Rockpool Publishing, $29.99), Mim provides readers with a comprehensive, practical and easy-to-use reference to assist with over 200 common ailments, including the common cold, burns, arthritis, premenstrual tension, infertility and menopause.
There are also strategies for losing weight, boosting the immune system, increasing energy levels and dealing with stress. Each condition is listed alphabetically clearly identifying symptoms, causes and the suggested natural cures. And best of all, many of these natural remedies are found in the family home and in our backyards.
Filled with practical, holistic advice, Mim Beim's Natural Remedies: An A-Z of cures for health and wellbeing is a must-have resource for all Australian homes.
Mim Beim has been practising as a naturopath for over twenty five years.
